At first glance, the plot (girl-meets-young-male-country gent but is not accepted by his family) is scarcely promising. But the book transcends this and manages to be interesting, funny and (somehow) original.
The secret is that Ms Mackesy can write proper English that engages the reader and her observations of life are excellent.
Perhaps the best praise I can give to this book is that I find myself being mildly irritated that people call it 'chicklit' (even upmarket chicklit). It's better than that.
Melody, a greek/australian on her travels meets Rufus, a real plum in the mouth Englishman, when she saves his life in Gozo. Fall in love and marry within weeks. Then he takes her home to England and is she in for a shock!!!
